Description

It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good....

Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever - and that old humiliation hits hard.

I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.

But then he kisses me.

And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.

Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.

Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.

But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.

Because this is not a make-over story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale....

Save yourself.

I had such high hopes for this book. To say I was disappointed is putting it mildly. I wanted a book that would make her into a hero for regular woman. There are enough stories about the gorgeous woman who get the gorgeous guy. I wanted her to feel proud of who she is in spite of all the jerks and less than human humans around her and I certainly didn't want her to wind up with the man who treated her with such disdain, used her as a stepping stone for his career and finally "saw the light" by seeing beyond her looks. She deserved better and he did not deserve her. I wanted her to kick ass, realize she is better than the rest of them and doesn't need any one of the idiot males represented in this book, particularly the police officers to make her whole or validate her being. Sorry, but this book just made me mad. It was a total waste of time. Also, we get from the book title she is not pretty, but did we need to have it drilled into us on each and every single page? And making him heroic for falling for the ugly girl does not make him a good guy, but just a shallow idiot who wants a pat on the back for "seeing past her looks". Should we throw him a parade because he realized that looks are only skin deep and fell for her because she is a spectacular woman? I say this for regular woman and girls everywhere...we deserve better than this awful representation even if just fiction.

Just plain fun!

This was fantastic! I didn't see the more serious side of it until I was neck deep in it. Butterface opens up your mind and makes you think of things you said in passing and perhaps not meant. It's just deeper than I expected and I loved it! Don't let that fool you though... it was still a riot! It totally tugged at my heart strings and made me think more about how we view ourselves.

Fantastic dual narration with Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood. Peachwood has this fun and light voice and you could feel her words and how impactful some statements were. Pallino had this deep tenor that I loved!

Oh Childhood Memories

I sure can whole heartedly identified with this story. I was one of those kids that at by the age of 12-13 I stood 5'8" & weighted 114lbs oh and let's not forget the I'm 1/2 Italian with the famine version of a "Jimmy Durante" nose. Yes, I got razzed about my nose from 6th grade all the away thru high school. I had a few close friends that took the time to get to know me, this shy, who am I kidding, when you talk about the wallflower. I was the wall. So yes, my dating life was nil to none. Until I was 18 and meet this guy while at work. All I can tell you is Holy Crap what a wonderful, loving, handsome man he was, he saw the flower and not the wall. We were married, and happy. I learned how to love him and myself at the same time and that's a gift I will have for the rest of my life. It's amazing how books can mirror life. This book is well worth a re-read. Thanks.

Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood --- NAILED IT

Listened for Fun (Audible)
Overall Rating: 3.75
Character Rating: 4.00
Story Rating: 3.50

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

Quick Thoughts: I think the "ugly" comments went on a little to long but outside of that I really enjoyed Butterface. Gina was fantastic and her friends were a hoot. Ford was a hunky rule follower that made me smile and I loved his family. I am going to have to go read Felicia's book :) Overall this was fun and I am really looking forward to the rest of The Hartigans!

Audio Thoughts: Narrated by Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood ---- NAILED IT! Seriously it was so good in audio form and I highly recommend it!

I really wanted to like it

I really wanted to love this book, but I'm so over the ugliness. I get it she was ugly, and honestly the super hot guy wanting her so quickly??.. just not realistic

Love is Blind

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook for the narrators Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood did a wonderful job. I would listen to another book that was narrated by either of them. Mr. Pallino and Ms. Peachwood are talented and were truly able to bring the characters in the story to life.

As for the story itself I found it had a strong and amusing start but then started to fizzle a bit in the third act. I felt that something was missing but just can't figure out what exactly. But that's my personal problem. While it was a cute story with a likable couple and some fun supporting characters it just didn't have any moments that inspired strong emotions from me. And to me the measure of a good book is one that has moments that stirs things up in me, be they bad or good.

As much as I wasn't exactly bold over by the story I am still interested in reading the other two books in the series. I'm adding Muffin Top and Tomboy on my list of must read.

Fell a bit flat

I loved the premise of this story - an unconventional heroine whose image of herself is challenged by the hero of the story. Of course, the hero has to be swoon-worthy, adorably awkward, and super hot. The story is, at times, fun, sweet and sexy.

While I enjoyed the story enough to continue reading until the end, it just didn't live up to the level of comedy and endearment that I expected. Comments on Gina's appearance started to grate on my nerves. And while it may not be realistic at all, I had hoped for Gina's character to face growth in her confidence quicker, or even for Ford to come clean with his secrets sooner.

I am still interested in checking out the other Hartigan stories.

Repetitive

Ok, I get it, she's ugly. That point was made the first chapter so why harp on it through the ENTIRE book. Move on the the actual story already!!!! So not worth the credit.

just ok

I really had no expectations for this one, I was just looking for something light and fun, it fulfilled that I just wasn't excited about the storyline as much, I wanted more of a laugh. The one take away is love is blind, beauty is found within which translates to a persons outer beauty.

such a cute story

Not your usual romance. Shes considered flawed with her inherited "big" nose. He's a by the book policeman who is sent to investigate her mob affiliated brothers.
